First bike and first alarm, but I got a scorpio. Expensive, but some good piece of mind. Essentially your best defense is full coverage.

I like the fact that my key chain will alarm should someone attempt to steal my bike in the middle of the night. Out comes my 12 guage. Problem solved...

I have a scorpio as well. I love it. It was pre-installed when I got the bike but as I understand it, scorpio offers wiring harnesses that make installation a breeze with no cutting/splicing. That's def a bonus. The features of the key fob are GREAT. When it alarms, the fob beeps and buzzes and tells you what KIND of alarm. Tilt versus shock, etc. It gets great range. Stated at 1/2 mile. I can arm/disarm/reset from my office while the bike is in a parking garage across the street. Another very cool thing about the Scorpio is the prox feature. Once set correctly, just someone creeping up on the bike will produce warning beeps. If they stay too long, or get too close, it will go into full alarm mode.

I use the 12 gauge alarm system too. So far it's working.
:stupic and if the sawed off doesnt work.... out comes the AR15 M4

i wouldn't mind having an alarm just for ruuning errons arund town, or going to the movies, out to eat, ect..... over night or when i'm at home there a garage and home security system, plus LOTS of FIRE POWER seem to be working well right now!!!!!!!

i was looking into the gorila alarm systems, not quite as high tech as scorpio, but then again its why less $$$$ and offers great features and good security.

There's other alarms out there. I think the they're all essentially the same, but what we like about the scorpio is the 2-way pager. Nobody pays attention to car/bike alarms. But if you're inside (at work, school etc.) and out of earshot of your alarm, you'll get alarmed via your keyfob. It's not horribly bulky, and the new ones come with a plug in charger. From what I understand the old ones ate threw batteries.

You can also get a proximity alarm for another 30 bucks that'll "help" keep nosy people and kids away. And I didn't get it but there's an ignition disable as well. So someone hot wires your bike and starts driving away you can disable it. It all helps...

the gorilla 7017 is a 2 way paging system thats comparable to the scorpio sr-i500, seems like both have very similar features but the Gorilla is almost half that of Scorpio.

i don't have any alarm so i am not saying that one is better than the other or that they are equal. just wanted to let you know about it. if i ever get an alarm it will prob be the gorilla 7017. ive herd a lot of positive feed back on the gorilla and the scorpo.

I have the Gorilla 7017 alarm. Just installed it 2 days ago. So far I love it! After testing it out I know it works well & have some peace of mind now. And for only $180 it's great!

Got mine off EBay. Super easy install, there is no splicing or cutting required. Just run the red wire to the +terminal of the battery and ground the black wire. Next find a location for the tilt sensor(I put mine in the battery tray) and siren (I put it in the "trunk"), then run the blue antenna wire as straight as possible along the frame of the bike. Next find a location for the red led indicator, that blinks when the alarm is on (I have it sticking out of a hole underneath the tail section). Thats it.

Interesting the Scorpio runs to the signal lights as well.
